Course Description:

This is a 3-day course.  Cloud Computing is an emerging technology paradigm that helps organizations deliver IT services faster, with more agility, and with a lower cost of ownership. IT organizations are becoming more cognizant of the associated risks that come with cloud environments. Trusting information assets to the cloud requires a thorough understanding of security and of its associated risks, legal considerations and design of a governance structure. The Cloud Security and (compliance) governance course is designed for senior security, audit, and compliance professionals who are architecting policies and strategies to ensure compliance with and secure use of cloud computing. This training is delivered as a 3-day classroom or virtual classroom program. The training covers the critical concepts and compliance considerations and complements this with hands-on, practical exercises, and case studies that extensively refer to best practices in the area of Security and Governance in a cloud environment. The course materials also include comprehensive reference materials that help to continue the participants’ educational experience post the course. The course prepares candidates for the Professional Cloud Security and Governance Certification (PCSG) Exam provided by the Cloud Credential Council. The PCSG is endorsed, recognized and/or supported by several key technology vendors and standards bodies. The content for this course, as well as the PSCG certification is based on and aligned with cloud standards developed by the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST).
